Poster designed to look like a news publication, entitled "the Onion". The nameplate is at the top right in black with a green strip below with the publication details: "Volume 36 Issue 13 America''s Finest News Source 13-19 April 2000" in white. On the right side of the poster are three satirical news stories - "South Postpones Rising Again For Yet Another Year," Nation Shocked by Pre-Natal Shooting," and "Insurance Executive Fakes Own Life". Each "news" story has a photo - three men lounging on/in front of a porch; an ultrasound photo of twins, with one shooting a gun; a portrait of a man in glasses. Down the left side of the poster is a "News" columns, with articles titled "Child Disciplined for Wasting Yarn" with a photo of a little girl, "Soda Nearing Room Temperature" with a photo of a "Jolly Good" soda can, Bargain Hunter Becomes the Bargain-Hunted," and "Moment of Your Time Apparently Means 33 Minutes". At the bottom left is a "Statshot" section with "a look at the numbers that shape your world" featuring responses to the question "How about the rack on that blonde?" Below the stats is a table of contents and a barcode.
